If you like European apartment buildings this hotel is for you. It is actually an old apartment building - and the reception is up on the first floor.... Don't be disappointed as you enter. It really is a find. Very friendly staff, great rooms (you really couldn't hear the other rooms or noise from ours), great breakfast and great afternoon tea - well worth getting back to relax in front of the fire and eat cake and drink tea from 4 to 6pm (the afternoon tea is included in the room rate as is the breakfast)...
The hotel is located in a quiet part of town, nearest underground is Volkstheater - and it's 5 minutes from there. We walked to the Hofburg Palace (Spanish Riding school) in 15 minutes - so I think it's very well located - although you're not in the centre of town. But the walk is mostly on big wide boulevards and very pleasant - and you pass quite a lot of 'sights'.
As I said great staff - very friendly and helpful. Very comfortable rooms. Lots of great modern art in the rooms and communal rooms.
The hotel doesn't have a restaurant - but does breakfast and tea. They also have a 'snack' menu which we used after the theatre - and that was very good....
I'd definitely recommend it if you want something 'different', a bit quirky and extremely comfortable.
